If you are interested in visiting one of the world's most underrated tourist spots, it turns out you don't have to travel far.

As a matter of fact, you don't even need a passport, but if you have an EZPass, that may come in handy. So where is this place that made The Active Times list of Most Underrated Tourist Spots in the World list?

Here's a look at some of the other places that made the list...Paros, Greece, Normandy, France, Nosy Be, Madagascar and Kathmandu, Nepal. So, what place 90 minutes away from us is mentioned among these exotic locations?

It turns out its just a relatively quick trip south and west. So where is this magical underrated place. Here's a hint...it's close but it's not in New Jersey You may have never heard of it before, It's a place called Philadelphia.

Wait, what?

Isn't Philadelphia one of the most historic well known cities around? Of course it it, but The Active Times says the Philadelphia Museum of Art (with the famous steps), the Rocky statue and the cheesesteaks may not be getting the attention it deserves.

So, great news. You can hop in the car for a quick drive to a great nearby city and tell everyone you visited one of the most underrated tourist spots on the planet.
